W8R1

Well I've done it just completed W8R1, my husband & kids think I've lost the plot!! As I insisted they give me high 5s as I'm so elated that I've done it, that extra 3 mins didn't notice it, this is the best run I've done, after my first post saying the first 5 mins was hell & lots of you giving me encouragement & advice I slowed my pace right down & its definitely helped me, so happy ☺️☺️

Excellent. Nothing wrong with losing the plot every now and then!

Well done you!

Slowly slowly is the way to do it. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Well, it isn't really a marathon, thank goodness, but you know what I mean.

I'm a little bit ahead of you + like you found wk 8 not too bad (much better than wk 7.)

I have a sort of out of body experience where I think, Look, that's me, running. How on earth did that happen?!

Yes that's exactly how I felt
